Locked out

The video “Locked out” is showing a steel key hanging in a chemical liquid. The resistant material of steel is starting to dissolve and gets ephemeral. The symbol of access and lock, of power and property is gone. The process is questioning about the feeling that you get if you get locked out at once from home or work. It creates anxiety to lose control, to lose confidence, it creates anxiety of existence and of being locked out from the society.
